Access to starting point:
We drive to Slovenske Konjice and there ahead towards Zreče. We follow the road ahead towards ski slope Rogla. When we come to the ski slope we don't park but we drive on the road ahead to the mountain hut Koča na Pesku, where we park. Road from Rogla to the mountain hut Koča na Pesku descends a little.
Path description:
From the mountain hut, we go to the left road (from the direction Rogla), which is slightly descending towards signs Lovrenška jezera. We follow the road good five minutes to light right turn, where we go on a footpath (cart track). Cart track quickly brings us to an artificial lake below the ski slope Rogla. Only few ten meters from the lake we run into a smaller bridge over a stream. We cross the bridge and on the other side signpost shows us, that we are on the right path. Path ahead is ascending on a cart track for approximately 20 minutes to a crossing, where from the left side joins the path from hotel Planja.
We go right on a rough road on which in the winter time runs a cross country ski trail. We follow this path ahead almost horizontal. Rough road then crosses a stream and soon and then passes over on a wide footpath. Footpath starts slightly ascending over a little thinner spruce forest and it brings us to a lookout tower at Lovrenška jezera. To view the lakes we have to continue on a paved footpath for approximately five minutes.
From the tower we return few meters back to a crossing, where a signpost point us to the right towards Ribniška koča. After a shorter gentle descent from the left joins the path from hotel Planja (direct path). We continue here on the right footpath, which mostly horizontally crosses slopes below lakes Lovrenška jezera. Because we walk very near the lakes is by the path quite a lot of very small wells on which water from the lakes drains. Path soon and then passes out of the forest on a meadows and brings us on the next crossing.
We go left slightly downwards on a meadow. Path right goes towards Lovrenc na Pohorju. Path on a wide meadow, that runs in a gentle descent is very pleasant because we are surrounded by individual trees. Which are becoming more frequent so that we quickly pass over in the forest again. Here the path starts descending a little more by the cart track and partly on it. In the middle of this descend we run into a pleasant well. Path soon and then it brings us to the lowest point of the path 1300m high saddle Šiklarica. Path ahead is slightly ascending still through spruce forest. After approximately half an hour of the ascent forest becomes quite thin. Here the path to Ribniško jezero branches off to the right (10 min) and we continue straight upwards on a marked path. Only few minutes ahead we already notice a grassy peak with a large monument. We reach the peak without problems.
From the top, we continue on a grassy path, that starts to descend. After a short descent path brings us on a smaller saddle, where we come to the road. Here we go on the road left slightly upwards and in five minutes we reach the mountain hut Ribniška koča.
